Rangers Top Preds at The Garden

by Matt Calamia @MattCalamia /

The Rangers topped the defending Western Conference champion Nashville Predators, 4-2, Saturday night at Madison Square Garden.

"You definitely enjoy winning, and we haven't been doing that a lot," Kevin Hayes said after scoring the game-winning goal 12:46 into the second period that put the Rangers ahead by two. "Hopefully it's a springboard into a lot more."

While no game is perfect, the Rangers were satisfied with their play against a Nashville team that entered the game 4-0-1 in its last five games, especially early with two goals in the first period, with the first coming from Jesper Fast, who followed Hayes into Nashville's zone on a breakaway and buried home the loose puck after No. 13 was initially stopped.

From the Rink: Wild turns to Stalock in Calgary

Goaltender will be making his fifth career start at Scotiabank Saddledome

by Dan Myers @1DanMyers /

CALGARY -- The Minnesota Wild will send goaltender Alex Stalock between the posts as it tries to salvage the second of back-to-back games north of the border on Saturday against the Calgary Flames at Scotiabank Saddledome. 

With the quirky schedule, it's been two weeks to the day since Stalock last saw action, when he made 38 saves in a 5-4 shootout loss against the Carolina Hurricanes.

The final stat line doesn't show it, but he was fantastic in that game. And going back to last season, when he started two games near the end of the regular season, Stalock has been fantastic in his three starts in a Wild uniform.
